Ichthyomancy Standings









Marlon D














Thomas Bennett


Kevin Kraczkowski


John Butterworth


As on most days where the Marlins lose, it was an ugly sight at the Ichthy scoretable. Marlon D calling for a Prado double was inspired and worth two points, but that was the only thing to write home about. That and nearly 50% of the panel correctly guessing Stanton as a Zero.

Miami has a rubber game with the Phillies this afternoon just after 1PM. Get your picks in early as the Marlins presumably send Tom Koehler back to the hill.
